Akshay sings for supper

After being a part of a rap song with Snoop Dogg for the film 'Singh is Kinng' in 2008, Akshay Kumar has taken his singing passion to another  level. Akshay kumar who is a self confessed bathroom singer has actually rendered a romantic song for Neeraj Pandey's film 'Special 26'.The romantic song 'Mujhme Tu' stars Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill and Kajal Aggarwal. It was launched yesterday.
On his playback debut, Akki says, "In Singh is Kinng, I just did a few lines with Snoop Dogg. But this is technically my singing debut. Frankly, you have to credit my director Neeraj and music composer MM Kreem for this song. Kreem sahab made me sit at the harmonium for six to seven hours and urged me to give it a try. He said, 'Akshay do not bother about the sur and taal. You just sing with sincerity. I will do the rest. I blindly followed his advice and I would like to dedicate this song as a Valentine Day's gift to all lovers."
Though it's a romantic song, the song is said to have a lot of zing. Akki rehearsed for 15 days after Neeraj's approval and after that it didn't take him too long to record it. Akshay's version is not yet added to the album but the film maker are keen to do so. Kreem says, "Akshay's pitch was good. He has a rich voice and I am happy with the outcome."
Adds Neeraj, "Akshay took an instant liking to the song. We decided to shoot a video with him and wanted him to lend his voice to the track. He isn't a trained singer but he was so well-versed that by the time we recorded the song, it was very easy."
Let's see how the audience takes to Akki's singing talent.
